Okay, so I have really bad anxiety to the point that stress makes me seriously physically ill (to the point that it gives me migraines, makes it hurt to breathe, and various other things that are generally un-awesome). Sometimes I really just wish the whole rest of the world had an off switch, and that I could just make all the chaos stop, even just for a few minutes. Clearly, that's not a legitimate option.
Sometimes writing helps, but sometimes it just makes me think more about what's stressing me out in the first place. Sometimes reading or watching movies or those kinds of things help, but have the same drawbacks. Live music is the best stress reliever for me, but it's not exactly readily available all the time.
So, what do you guys do to knock stress down with a super-powerful punch to the face? Suggestions would be really helpful. :)
Oh and I dunno if anyone would consider saying this or not, but please don't suggest pot. I have legitimate reasons for not doing it, so please don't even bother bringing it up. :P
